Netflix have just released the first trailer for their latest venture into the world of Marvel comic book characters. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist finally meet in this 2 and a half minute trailer for The Defenders, and everything is falling into place.
We also get an idea about who else will be popping up in the new series. It looks like Simone Missick is back as feisty cop Misty Knight, and Rosario Dawson returns as the faithful Claire Temple. Stick is back too, along with Elektra – who we last saw in quite a bad state at the end of Daredevil Season 2.
Most exciting of all though is the appearance of Sigourney Weaver, who will be playing main villain; Alexandra. According to The Defenders writer and producer – Marco Ramirez – Alexandra is a powerful force in New York; sophisticated, intellectual and dangerous. She doesn’t seem to have any comic book history so her role is a bit up in the air right now, but it’s rumoured she’ll play some sort of Kingpin.
The Defenders will be released on Netflix on the 18th August.
